Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi was released in 2019 and was a period drama based on the life of Rani Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi. The film was directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and Kangana Ranaut from a screenplay by K. V. Vijayendra Prasad and produced by Zee Studios, Kamal Jain, and Nishant Pitti.
The film also fell into never-ending controversy at the time of release. Krish Jagarlmudi who co-directed the film lashed out at Kangana Ranaut for undermining him for his work and claiming that she directed 70% of the film.
He said, ”I am curious to know who will work with Kangana after the kind of reputation she has acquired for undermining the director and taking over a project.”
He also added, “Isn’t she trying to make mileage of the film? I don’t need this kind of publicity. Nor do I need an endorsement of my abilities from either Kangana or her sister. ‘Manikarnika…’ is my ninth film. I’ve made lavish costume dramas in the past. I will make them again.”
Not only this, Sushant Singh Rajput’s film ‘Chhichhore’ was also awarded the best Hindi feature film.
